The presentation will cover Social Ventures Australia’s experience in evaluating social change programs in Indigenous communities. Examples will include the Martu leadership program evaluation with an emphasis on approaches to support decision-making that leads to improvements and behaviour change. This is particularly important in the Indigenous space where meaningful results require meaningful engagement. SVA Consulting has been working with Indigenous communities and organisations for the last 10 years to measure and evaluate the impact of interventions on efforts to ‘close the gap’.
